Event Details

In his first non-fiction book, Chaudhuri masterfully merges the genres of memoir, reportage and history as a way to describe the transformations of this ancient city and modern India. Amit guides us through not only the historical and political trajectory and turmoil of this city, but also the various streets, teashops, music stores and more. His personal narrations and stories offer an intimate, richly sensual portrait of the city.

Organizer

Mechanics' Institute Library & Chess Room

The Mechanics' Institute Library and Chess Room is an historic membership library, cultural event center, and chess club located in the Financial District of San Francisco, California at 57 Post Street. Founded in 1854 to serve the vocational needs of out-of-work gold miners, the Institute today is a favorite of avid readers, writers, downtown employees, students, film lovers, chess players, and the 21st century nomadic worker who needs a quiet place to plug in a laptop and do research.
